Squire Patton Boggs has been named a leading foreign law firm for India Work by India Business Law Journal, appearing in its annual report which showcases the India-related achievements and activities of law firms around the world. The report draws on analysis of over 600 law firms from every continent that have recorded transactions or cases with an Indian connection over the past year, taking views from in house and external counsel, and private law firms in India.
The report cites the firm’s commitment to India and enthusiasm for attracting India-related work: “Squire Patton Boggs boosted its India team last year with the appointment of Biswajit Chatterjee from DLA Piper. Chatterjee’s credentials have helped attract a healthy pipeline of India work. In April this year, the firm assisted HSBC Securities and Capital Markets (India) and ICICI Securities on VRL Logistics’ Rs. 4.73 billion (US$75million) IPO. A client says the firm’s “commitment to the needs of their clients has been exceptional.”
Biswajit Chatterjee, Corporate partner and a member of the Squire Patton Boggs India Group, commented: “It is gratifying to have been recognized by India Business Law Journal as a firm committed to its practice in India. Our clients’ interests cover both inward and outward investment across a range of industries including automotive, aviation, banking, information technology, energy and natural resources, and we have considerable depth and breadth of experience in India-related work.”
